Fair as Weather

                      “If you don’t like our weather,”
                      they keep saying to each other
                      down here like it’s so profound,
                      “Just a few minutes wait around,”
                      count on change to play nice.
                      I’ve found that to work the same
                      with traffic. With commercials
                      on TV. With local political trends.
                      With words used against friends.
                      And with the one love of your life.
                      Except I’m only here from up north
                      serving a temporary assignment.
                      I’m used to letting words be kept,
                      to no substitute for love accept.
                      Anyway, it’s not as cold as all that.
